By Apostle Dave
Associate with people who have done better than you. Tell them your dreams, what you want to achieve, why you think it’s important and what you consider your obstacles. Warning - don’t consider your current lack of money or certificate on the wall as obstacles.
Refrain from dwelling on your past failures and limitations and use them as points of reference only. You are more likely to succeed by focusing and working on the future you envision than by looking back to experiences that bring sorrow to you. You know for sure that you can’t change your past but you can do something about your future.Learn to love learning. Invest in programs and materials that add to your knowledge base of things that matter to you. This world belongs to the learned and that has nothing to do with race, tribe, religion or any other narrow category that relegates (or used to relegate) masses to pathetic conditions of living.Help others succeed in their own endeavors. If there is one thing in life that is achievable by anyone and in its fulfillment changes lives and the world, it is investing ourselves in the service of others regardless of whether we are monetary rewarded or not. “What you do for yourself can get you by. What you do for others is what will get you ahead; whether in your profession, spiritual pursuits or relationships.”Know what you can control and what you can’t. Never waste your brain, a minute of your time or a dime on anything beyond your control. We only change the world by being involved in what we can control.There are three aspects that are very important for your professional/personal growth.
